Oh, How Pinteresting! & Wordless (TV I Heart)

Wednesday... OHP... Visit Michelle...See my Pins below. 
Got it? Good.  
~ Hope your week is going well! ~

This week I decided to go with another "theme".  Looking through my Pins, I realized I sure love a lot of HBO shows.  I also own a lot of TV series on DVD.  The shelf of DVDs could easily pass for an HBO commercial.  
 I should mention, I have a bit of an obsession with having complete, matching sets of things! 
Here is a glimpse into the series I own.  I haven't necessarily watched every season of all of them, but I have years and years of entertainment in my TV stand.  
(In case DirecTV ever pisses me off...?)

This is probably the first series I REALLY got into on HBO. I had recently finished reading a novel relating to the Romans and this show premiered at just the right time to draw me in.  I am sad it only aired for 2 seasons.  :-(  
(P.S. Titus Pullo is way high on my list of imaginary character crushes.)

The Office 
OK, this one's not HBO, but it is one I love.  Having worked in an office since college, it's so (ridiculously)  familiar, I just couldn't help falling in love when it first came on the air all those years ago.  
We've kind of stopped watching it lately (mainly because my BF gets too uncomfortable watching it sometimes!) but I fully intend to complete my collection on DVD. 

Game of Thrones
Only one season on DVD so far (although i suspect season 2 will be out for Christmas)... 
I read all of the books that Game of Thrones is based on, and am not so patiently eagerly awaiting the next one.  It might be years for the next book, but I read that the 3rd book (my favorite in the series) is going to be split into 2 season.  

The Tudors
I have a major healthy obsession with all things Tudor.  
When I heard Showtime was going to air this show, I almost peed myself.  I loved it. 
It wasn't extremely accurate (trust me, I know) and I wasn't thrilled with the physical appearance of Jonathan Rhys Meyers at first.  But I got used to him and I think he did a great job.

After Rome ended, my mom recommended Deadwood to me, and I decided to give it a shot. I am so glad I did.  I loved it.  From start to finish.  
I laughed, I cried, I was shocked.  It's a great show.

Big Love
Since Rome and Deadwood were so great, I started watching basically everything HBO was putting out.  Big Love is fascinating, and (like Deadwood, well I guess like all HBO shows) there are so many shocking moments, it really keeps you on your toes.

I actually started watching this one (out of order, which I NEVER do) because it came on after Game of Thrones every time it aired for the first time.  
And I got sucked in. By the music, by the characters, by the city of New Orleans.  
This show is passionate.

Mad Men
Also not HBO, but Mad Men is definitely climbing on my favorites list as I progress through the series.  My brother (Dr. Bro) introduced me to this one.  
I love the clothes and the cars!

That about wraps it up. 
Hours and hours (probably weeks and weeks) of TV series, in case of a TV emergency.  :-)  
Like I said on Tuesday Tunes, if you also own all of these DVD sets... 
Let's plan a blate sometime.  :-) 
Even though I blabbed away today, 
I'm going to link up with some of these ladies for "Wordless Wednesday"

I heart the Tudors! I studied them extensively in college. I wish the show would have continued on with Mary and Elizabeth, though. Maybe some day!

Naturally I had to stop by and say hi to a blogger who shares my name! :) Most people call me Cindy, but I love Cynthia and wish I was more known by that.

I don't get to see most of these shows because I don't have HBO. I've always thought I would really like The Tudors...I love British history.

And of course,The Office is awesome.

Dear Cynthia,

I just travelled over from Across the Pond, and it was probably also one of my first lifestyle blogs I regularly read!

I love your blog, it looks so pretty!
And I too love THE TUDORS!! I am an addict! I also love Downton Abby, did you ever try that?
